I have spaces available for new clients. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.
I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and work in depth, long-term therapy and in brief therapy. I offer a relational approach to counselling and psychotherapy that integrates a number of therapeutic schools, including psychodynamic and person-centred approaches. For my Masters dissertation I focused on mindfulness meditation in therapy. I have completed eating disorder treatment training in Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy at The Centre for Research on Dissemination at Oxford, Oxford University Department of Psychiatry, and training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I work in private practice online using chat, email, phone and video conferencing, face-to-face in Borough/London Bridge, and as a University Counsellor at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
You can find me on BACP’s Therapist Directory, Counselling Directory and Psychology Today.
My client led approach provides the time and space for you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your past and your current situation. I create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I believe that by gaining insight into past life experiences and how they may be impacting on the here and now you can begin to move forward and build the relationships around you. My practice is inclusive and welcoming to people of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, faiths, genders, nationalities, and sexual orientations.

I am an HCPC registered Art Therapist also trained to work online and face to face with adults and children as well as a member of BACP and a Fellow of the RSA.

Sessions and treatment are planned to meet your individual emotional, therapeutic and basic ‘being’ needs before working on any life experiences or difficulties.
What does meeting being needs look like?
Ways to regulate emotions – to relax, feel calm and self sooth
Ways to keep and feel safe
The experience of being with another, being heard.
Once safety, trust are established we can look to process experiences and difficulties you may be facing.
I focus on the healing of inner systems through Self-leadership. The defences you have built around your vulnerability have served you to survive. Connecting to your inner parts and processes in a creative and caring dialogue brings awareness of who you really are and—finally—also healing. This is the essence of what is called Internal Family Systems Therapy; but it is also the core of Gabor Maté’s Compassionate Inquiry. I would like to facilitate this inner process. In the first video session we would try to find out if we can work with each other, if online counselling is the right way for you and how we can proceed. And we take it from there…
‘In the waves of change we find our true direction’.
At the points in our lives when we feel like we are surrounded by change, we have an opportunity to remake ourselves. We can choose which parts we wish to take with us to build our future and which we no longer need. Whether change is imposed on us from the outside or it bubbles up from within us, it can leave us feeling out of control and stuck, unsure of what to do next. Whatever the feelings are that you are experiencing having a safe space to explore them and begin to make sense of what happens next can help you to take back control and choose your direction of travel.
I can offer you a place to be curious about what changes are possible for you, to explore your past and present so you can make choices about your future. As an integrative counsellor I am able to draw on a number of therapeutic approaches and we will work collaboratively to find out how I can best support you.
Because I know that counselling works best when you find the right person, I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation, so you can check if I’m the right person for you. Please contact me by email or phone with your availability and I will get back to you in 48 hours. More information about me is available on my website www.curiosityspot.co.uk
